The Miranda sisters of the Florida Keys will soon face criminal charges: both are charged with operating under the influence in the same car at the same time.
Florida Keys Police followed the sisters, Steffany and Vanessa, for a seven-mile stretch over which their Volkswagon was said to swerve, speed, and start and stop suddenly. When police attempted to pull the car over, Steffany didn’t pull over but instead stopped, switched seats with Vanessa, and then Vanessa continued driving all within plain view of the officer’s patrol car camera.
Though Steffany declined to submit a breathalyzer test, Vanessa submitted to two tests, both of which were well above the legal limit of .08 percent blood alcohol content.
Because both sisters operated the vehicle with keys in the ignition while under the influence of alcohol, both sisters will be charged with driving under the influence.
